Damn, that's shiitty, Chip. Did you guys have a typhoon or are the roads just really bad?

Seems that the future of hybrids might not be that bad after all....

That's because that's a rendering. Go look at the press shots of the real thing, looks nothing like it.

Yes, the M package is a small improvement. Go look at plain jane 4door photos of it though and think of seeing it driving around every day. : shudder :

Seafoamed the mess out of the car, went out and drove hard on it for 20-30 miles, barely smokes at all now.

I'm still switching to a heavier oil to see if it cuts consumption down.

I seafoamed an entire can through the intake manifold vacuum line, should I buy another and add it to the oil, and if I do should i drive with it in the oil for 20 miles? Or more?

What weight oil you running now? what are you going to switch to? I swithced to 15w50 mobil 1 and my car runs smoother and less noise. If you go that thick I wouldn't worry about running sea foam with it.

Me too. In fact, I like it better then the sedan. If only the head lights didn't touch the grilles

I'm switching to 20w50 but before I change it my question is how much seafoam should i put in the oil and how long should i drive it before I drain the seafoamed oil.
